Going through the curtained door opens up to an amazing church of unimaginable architecture and sculptured marble or alabaster columns with barley twisted marble forms. The church is situated just a short walk down a side street off of the town centre and offers a place to reflect, rest and consider what people can achieve.

This church is worth a visit. Especially at night it's beautiful if you like to take photographs as it is lit up.

a nice church, very nice architecture inside, the "optical ollusion" was interesting - not really a "must do" in Poznan but if you have 10 mins and are in the town square it is worth to pop in for a look

Amazing church close to the main square. Beautiful baroque style and an amazing view of the church from the end of street when you are on the main square.

Architectural must-see. Baroque basilica with monumental sounding organs (concerts on Saturdays). Recently renovated is the best place to admire the craftsmanship of architects, sculptors and painters.

Gorgeous Jesuit Baroque Church to say the least. All jesuit churches from the 1600 - 1700 share similar design mixed with local materials and traditions. If you love baroque architecture it's a stunning church.

Colorful, ornate, huge, and so impressive - don't hesitate to see this church! Of course, you must be quiet, but it is open daily for tourists and worth a stop when you are visiting the Old Market Square while in Poznan.
